Alright, now it's time for Fiona's Surprise Jacket.
I am surprised I like this one as much as I do, I was trying to stashbust and use up a shade of Cascade 220 I didn't like. I ended up pairing it with a shade of Noro that made me swoon. The 220 was a little thin when knit with the Kureyon so I double stranded it with a lace weight that I had in my stash. It seems to work. Of course, now I can't find the tags, and can't tell you which shade of 220 or Kureyon I used. My knitting is a jumbled mess right now.
I love how these jackets look from the back. Even though I used a provisional cast on for this jacket, I didn't end up lengthening the sleeves. I ran out of Kureyon so they stayed short. I used an I-cord bind off again for the button band and also put I-cord around the sleeves and neckline. I found buttons in my stash, Yay! Little silvery ones.
I don't think this picture means Fiona likes the jacket, she was wearing her kitty shoes through all these pictures, and they are her true love!
We are going to a carol service at our church this morning, tomorrow I'm baking cookies with the kids and finishing the gift wrapping. It will be a nice, relaxed Christmas at our house that I am really looking forward to.
Merry Christmas everyone!
